FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup play-off (Thursday at Mourneview Park, Lurgan)
Scotland v England (20:00CET, 19:00 local)

Holders France recovered for the second year running from an opening-day defeat to reach the semi-finals, Monday's victory against England securing their spot. They will take on record six-time winners Germany, who topped Group A with a match to spare but have not lifted the trophy since 2011.

In the other semi-final, Group B winners the Netherlands continue their bid to emulate their seniors' triumph at UEFA Women's EURO 2017. They will play Spain, who have finished runners-up for the last three seasons; Spain beat the Netherlands 4-3 at this stage in Slovakia in 2016.

If either of Thursday's semi-finals is level after extra time, any penalty shoot-out will take place under the experimental 'ABBA' format. Teams are also permitted a fourth substitute in extra time.

The WU19 EURO final, which will be held in Belfast at 20:30CET (19:30 local) on Sunday, will also be broadcast live on Eurosport.

The four semi-finalists also qualify for the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in France. However, since France are automatically qualified as hosts, a play-off will be held in Lurgan on Thursday between the two third-placed teams – Scotland and England – to decide Europe's remaining berth. The tournament is played from 7–26 August 2018.
